Prepare Not The Same As Preview


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Prepare Not The Same As Preview

I made a little mountain and base plate part for a project im working on, and when I put the STL in prepare, it looks normal. However, when I slice and preview, it fills in the through hole in the mountain, but only in certain spots. Anyone have any ideas?


Here is the prepare screen after I import the part:



Here is the preview layer 21:

Here is preview layer 101:



Here is preview layer 171

    What cad software did you use?


    Well your model has some problems.  Someone had this very issue in the last 2 weeks and solved it by playing with the mesh options.  Go to the mesh options and click the gear and make them all visible.  I think he removed "overlapping volumes" (unchecked)?  Alternatively you can fix the problems in cad or you can put this through the web based netfabb repair service which is free but you have to create an account.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
